The poorly-promoted Sprinter 4x4 may get some competition

Renault LCV is evaluating the Master 4x4 van and cab/chassis for Australian release.

The 4x4 kit is produced by off-road-engineering specialist company, Oberaigner, which also fits 4x4 drivelines to Mercedes-Benz and VW Crafter vans and cab/chassis.

“When it comes to traction performance, customers' needs can vary significantly, depending on terrain, conditions, type of work and payload,” said Lyndon Healey, Renault Australia LCV Manager.

Renault Master 4x4 drivers can choose between two modes: 4x2 transmission for normal roads or a 4x4 mode for poor quality roads or off-road use. In 4x4 mode, the Renault Master 4x4 can be driven on inclines, slippery ground, unsealed surfaces, damp paddocks, muddy ground and fire trails.

The 4x4 feature will be available for Single and Dual Cab cab/chassis and for rear-wheel drive vans.

“Renault Australia will carry out specific market evaluation on the Master 4x4 in the near future to determine its suitability for our driving conditions,” Lyndon said.

“There is a large market for 4x4 Dual Cabs in Australia and with our high payload and up to seven-seat capacity, a Master 4x4 could be a handy addition to the range,” he said.
